After Seeing Prince William, Prince Harry May 'Question What He's Given Up' As He Is No Longer A Senior Member Of The Royal Family
Big regrets? After reuniting with his brother, Prince William, in the U.K. on July 1 for Princess Diana's statue unveiling, royal expert Duncan Larcombe believes that Prince Harry might not like living miles apart from his family after all.
"Harry and Meghan [Markle] seem to think they can co-exist in these two worlds – the world of British royals and American celebrity," Larcombe told Closer magazine. "Harry is loving the American life now – but he's still in the honeymoon phase. I think coming back and seeing his brother, especially against the very moving backdrop of a memorial for their mother, will maybe make him question what he's given it all up for."
However, journalist and mental health advocate Bryony Gordon believes quite the opposite, as she thinks Harry — who moved to the West Coast last summer — is living his best life now that he is no longer a senior member of the royal family.
"The anger of the past has gone, and it has been replaced with a sense of purpose," she told the Daily Telegraph. "California is not just Harry’s physical home for now – it is also his spiritual one, where nobody thinks anything of openly discussing their struggles."

While speaking to Dax Shepard earlier this year, Harry made it clear that he was not leaving California anytime soon.
"Here, I can actually lift my head and I feel different. My shoulders have dropped, so has hers," he said. "You walk around feeling a little bit more free. I get to take Archie on the back of my bicycle. I never had the chance to do that."
In February, Harry told James Corden that he would always be part of the royal family.
"It was never walking away," he stated. "It was stepping back rather than stepping down."
"Whatever decisions are made on that side I will never walk away," he said. "I'll always be contributing. My life is public service so wherever I am in the world it's going to be the same thing."
